Re: “Forest Edge

This new gallery is a gem in Trumpetvine court. And the first exhibition has gorgeous, interesting figures that blend in with the aesthetics, but make you look twice to see all the layers there. The Boy/Girl piece still haunts me.

Re: “Forest Edge

Wonderful, enchanting exhibit in this new gallery. Sara Lisch has a very unique style. Definitely worth checking out.

"Seriously affordable." Now that's a new phrase for me.

Re: “Kiss My Aztec

Berkeley Rep audiences will love this stunningly vulgar musical that checks off every box: victimhood, race, gender, sexual identity, and more.

From the opening scene of noble Aztecs scanning the horizon for 'White men in boats' to the final anthem of 'The world is getting browner, Kiss my Aztec drives patrons to a standing ovation recapitulating the scene from Cabaret where Hitler Youth stand to sing "The Future Belongs to Us.
Heil Leguizamo! Heil.

Re: “Josh Levin Reading

One of the unexpected fringe benefits of trudging thru Levin's painfully detailed book is getting to the sections describing Taylor's year in late WWII Oakland when she lived in West Oakland., complete with addresses.

He makes a strong case that Ronald Reagan set the stage for many of Trump's election tactics, especially lying and using racist dog whistle terms. But after a while you feel like he's spending too much of our time discussing the politics of Taylor's era.

All in all the book needs some serious editing to cut it down by about a third.

(Unless I missed a tree in the wide forest of Levin's book, which is entirely possible because there is so much trivial detail mixed with the good stuff, as of the first 2/3 or so of the book, Taylor would pass as white, black, Mexican, Filipino, and native Hawaiian whatever it took to survive and con people. But author's best info was that her dad was black and mom white.

Re: “Go Figure Draw

This is a small group, great artist community, & we have professional models.
Very reasonably priced. Would definitely encourage anyone who wants to try drawing the human body to 1st study youtube vids then sign up for this meetup. No judgments here...the people in our group (Studio 23 & the Alameda Artists) are so supportive & great!
